LOUISVILLE, KY. —
Rose-Hulman senior Liz Evans set a new NCAA Division III all-time record in the outdoor high jump on Saturday to lead the Engineers’ effort at Bellarmine University.

Three other Fightin' Engineers enjoyed strong performances early on Saturday afternoon.
Senior Trey Cahill set a Rose-Hulman school record in the hammer throw, surpassing 180 feet. Junior Ryann-Rebecca Montgomery set a new school record in the 1,500-meters by running a time of 4:46.18. Senior Travis Stallings added a strong second-place in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 53.37 seconds that ranks fourth in school history.
The Engineers will host an Open Meet next Friday at the William Welch Track Complex, then travel to the Indiana Division III Championships at Franklin on Saturday.

ISU football set for first spring scrimmage
Thanks to a limited number of available offensive linemen — a group that will at least double in numbers in the fall with the addition of recruits and currently injured players — the Sycamores won’t have a full-scale scrimmage, but will still intersperse scrimmage plays (with officials) among other practice drills.
“We’re thin,” coach Mike Sanford admitted after practice Thursday. “The scrimmage will be part of practice — probably 30 or 40 plays altogether. We only have five to seven healthy offensive linemen, so we can’t go [in a scrimmage format] for long stretches of time.”

Through seven innings, ISU had issued six walks, gave up six hits and hit a batter, but still trailed by just a run. But ISU’s luck with its generosity would give out in the eighth, and even if it hadn’t, Illinois State standout starter Dan Savas had the Sycamores’ bats in a deep freeze anyway.
